Honours merit calculation

Honours merit calculation will be based on the averaged results of 12 units in the final two years of the course with the following descriptive outcomes:

  • Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) with High Distinction; for students who achieve 80 and above
  • Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) with Distinction; for students who achieve 70 – 79
  • Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) with Credit; for students who achieve 60 – 69
  • Bachelor of Engineering (Hons); for students who achieve less than 60

Students who transfer with advanced standing are required to undertake at least nine of these units at Swinburne, including all six outcome units, to qualify for an honours merit calculation. This honours merit calculation will be based only on units completed at Swinburne. If a student has not completed at least nine of the specified units, they will graduate with a BEng (Hons) as an award title, but not be eligible for a merit based honours description.
